The Bazaar

Rumor has it someone’s come damn close to hacking the human brain. That someone happens to be Mitchell Fulton’s late friend, brilliant but troubled programmer David Reese. If Reese’s code falls into the wrong hands it will pave the way for digital weapons of mass  destruction: computer viruses that infect human minds.

Fulton agrees to help a team of military contractors retrieve it.

They aren’t the only ones gunning for Reese’s app, however. A group of freelance terrorists are looking to make a big score. They’ve got one of the best hackers in the business and no shortage of willing buyers. The drug cartels that control the Central American Free Trade Zone, for starters.

Fulton and company soon find themselves on the bleeding edge of a new kind of war — one fought in the streets, online and inside their minds.

The Bazaar is a 30,000-word novella. I published it on this blog, one chapter at a time. This page serves as the index.
